The iPhone isn't ideal for watching videos for a long period, it drains battery and is uncomfortable. The iKit Nu Charge's built-in battery and kickstand fix that.
The Glif is one impressive little piece of plastic. It can stand your iPhone 4 up in portrait mode. It can prop it up in landscape. And it has a built-in camera mount for attaching your iPhone to a tripod.
The Kensington PowerBack looks like a nice little iPad battery case. And a nice little iPad kickstand. And a nice little iPad dock. That is one sexy ménage-a-Pad.
With 3.27m sold since launch, it's becoming increasingly clear: this is the iPad's world and we're just living in it. And what better way to announce your subservience to your tablet than letting it ride you like a human Segway.
OK, Droid X. OK, Evo. You guys win. You have big, shiny screens that I would very much enjoy watching a movie on. But how to prop you up or hang you from a seat back? Ah! The Munkey.
HTC makes some beautiful phones, but designer Andrew Kim still sees room for improvement. The HTC 1 is his vision for a device with an even more refined and harmonious design. Can you spot the hidden kickstand?
An iPhone 3GS, standing proudly in portrait mode or kicking-back in landscape. Unlike its boxy-successor, its edges are rounded, so something must be holding it up. But what? The iPlunge, a kickstand ingeniously designed to look like a miniaturized plunger.
Having a spare tire in your trunk is good, sure, but having two is even better. Especially when they're attached by a folding, pedal-free electric bike made by Volkswagen. A bike with a cool curvy frame. And two kickstands.
There are plenty of good reasons you might want to prop up your iPhone. Say you're using it as an alarm clock. Or (sorry David Lynch) watching a video. MoviePeg, without being cutesy or funny or DIY-y, just does it.
Now that you know you'll have your sweaty hands on an iPad on April 3, you can start fussing over the other stuff you'll need for your shiny new gadget. This Vers case is pretty and has one of those..um...
Kickstands are enjoying something of a renaissance lately as tablets have jumped to the forefront of everyone's attention, so it's only natural that the HD2, the most tabletesque of smartphones, is getting a combination kickstand/battery pack of its own.
